Hi my name is Dinar, I am 12 years old. I live in Munduk Dawa, Bali. I live with my parents, grandparents and sister. My father works security at a hotel in the city. The distance from my house to where my father works is about 2 hours. Occasionally my mother will work a side job as a seamstress. My father works hard to support so many people in our family, but at times his salary is not enough to meet our daily needs. I will graduate from elementary school this year and I really hope to continue on to Middle School. I know the school fees increase for Middle School, so I’m not sure how my parents will afford it. At my school I really enjoy religious subjects. I want to continue my education and be able to study as much as I want, so that I can achieve my goals and make my parents proud. I don’t know if this is possible because of the costs. I know my father works hard, but I’m not sure I will be able to my make my dreams a reality, they may just be a dream.
Dinar, like so many other students, desires to continue her education! When you come alongside her family, you are giving them a priceless gift, by lifting the financial burden from their families and giving Dinar the possibility to reach her dreams!
